If you’re lucky enough to be one of the 2011 Academy Awards nominees, then you can look forward to receiving a fancy gold-plated Motorola Xoom on the big night.

In a surprisingly savvy marketing move, Motorola recently announced that they would be gifting limited edition Xooms to the nominees of some of the more prestigious Academy Award categories. While a gold-plated tablet might come as small consolation for 2011 Academy Awards nominees who don’t get the chance to take home a gold statue for their work, the fact that the major celebrities of the night will be carrying their shiny Xooms out of the event will undoubtedly make the initiative a major win for Motorola either way.
